Seeds of doubt set by well meaning friends telling you how much they love theirs or how much they went on to regret not having one.
Or the thought of having one makes you cringe a little but it’s that ‘what if’ worry that keeps bringing you back…
I’m talking last minute ‘wedding video’ worries.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have something to show off the day to people who couldn’t be there?
Not only the guests who couldn’t make it on the day but the children and grandchildren who aren’t even here yet.
It’s as much about capturing your guests enjoying the wedding as it is the wedding day itself and all those important moments like the vows and rings.
Katy and Dean above live in Australia and have family and friends all over the world who couldn’t make their wedding day.
“Thanks so much for everything you have done for our wedding. We’ve watched everything you’ve put together and couldn’t be happier! We showed our family and friends who couldn’t make the wedding, the speeches and ceremony you included in our package and they were blown away. So glad we added this little extra! Hope you and the fam are well ?” Dean.
But you have a professional photographer already, surely that’s enough?
And, then there’s the worry about whether they’ll get on with your photographer? You don’t want to feel even more pressure on the day having MORE people there to follow you round when you’re hoping for a relaxed, intimate wedding.
Well thanks to a few awesome, collaborative wedding photographers it got us thinking about how well we work as a team. How pleased our couples always are after the day, not only about how we fitted in and how discreet we all were but also how they’re so glad they decided to go for it.
“Looking back, I can’t believe we only wanted a video for dad…. and I am so glad you were there while I was getting ready. I actually look comfortable in front of the camera!! You know I was adamant I didn’t want to be videoed but as soon as I saw you filming Marella it became massively important to me to capture those moments and for Ian to see them too. “ Gemma.
As a Bride and as a professional I can totally relate to all the worries that come with booking a wedding videographer and so I pride myself on helping every one of my couples feel at ease around me. It also makes me work hard building these professional working relationships so it’s one less thing for you to worry about on your wedding day.
With all that in mind I’ve created a very special solo shooter wedding video package for anyone who’s booked (or plans to book) a photographer I love to work with. A simple full day filming with just myself and my camera, working hard alongside your awesome wedding photographer.
Always friendly and discreet this option is perfect for both the last minute couple and for the ones a little nervous about having a wedding video or being filmed full stop.
“When William suggested getting a wedding videographer I wasn’t keen. I didn’t like the thought of seeing and hearing myself on a DVD. I also thought we would never watch it so what would be the point.
Now I don’t ever look back, every time I watch the DVD it brings back all those excited and nervous emotions I had on the day. It is such a special memento to have and it has its own place on the shelf for everyone to see. We have watched it on many occasions and especially enjoy watching it with other wedding guests and reminiscing.” Kate.
So if you’re starting to think that actually having a wedding video is for you either get back in touch with your photographer and see what they think!
Or use my handy contact form and I’d be happy to chat to you about any worries you may have.
Whether it’s in a few days or a few months, if I’m free I’d love to work on something with you to ensure you get the perfect wedding video that fits in well with your relaxed wedding and with the added bonus of it being a little less than my usual wedding video packages they’re more affordable to squeeze in too!
If you want to read a bit more in to whether booking a wedding videographer is for you I’ve written a more detail blog HERE called ‘Should I have a wedding videographer?’ that is worth a read too!
